Why would reading the Bible make you an atheist?

Why would reading the Bible make you an atheist?

Warning: Reading the Bible (or the Koran, or the Torah) is the surest way to atheism. That's the view of magician and raconteur Penn Jilette, acquired from his own experience. Penn Jillete is one half of Penn and Teller.

3 books, all human responses to the human condition, all distorted in different ways by a human perspective. Discrediting these books doesn't necessarily deny the existence of God, although if an omnipresent God exists, and wants to teach us how to live our lives, they have done a fairly shitty job in communicating that in my opinion - which I admit, may be equally distorted.

Is he saying there ISN'T a giant bearded man in the sky who with some help from a humanoid with wings put a holy sperm inside a married virgin, giving birth to one of the greatest magicians of all time? :O (Second to Gandalf of course!)

There goes a man who read the Bible and did not understand one word of what he read. Explain the concept of sin and its consequences for mankind, big thinker. Explain the Edenic covenant Explain the Abrahamic covenant. Explain the David covenant. All three covenants provide for the salvation of man. If this man understood them, he would not talk such superficial nonsense. Explain the atonement provided by Jesus Christ. People like this, Dawkings and Hitchings just weary me.

I'm a theist who loves Penn. I don't agree with him, and I wish I could engage in dialog about what says. I can cope with a man with such respect even for those with whom he disagrees. Sad to say, that's not found in many people.
